The ankle is exposed to more stress than any other joint in the body and is therefore highly susceptible to strain, injury and pain.  

Ankle injuries tend to fall into two categories: sprains and/or fractures although ankle pain can be caused by other problems such as a biomechanical malfunction of the foot or ankle caused by repeated stress or osteoarthritis.

With the correct diagnoses of injuries and in most cases, simple treatment and a rehabilitation programme will be sufficient to heal and strengthen areas of injury and weakness.

Treating ankle injury effectively and ensuring the injury has fully healed is important to prevent ongoing ankle instability and recurrent injury and pain.
